no, it states that you CANNOT exceed the speed limit, at any time, even when passing. if the car you were passing was going significantly below the limit and you sped up to above the limit to pass safely on a 2 lane road, then the officer may let it go, but since you were on a divided highway "safety" isn't even close to a legit reason for speeding.
